Abstract Details


To describe the refractive results of multifocal IOL implantation in patients with previous corneal refractive laser surgery for hyperopia.


Retina Total Eye Care, Driebergen, The Netherlands


Prospective data collection of refractive and visual acuity results 3 months after implantation of a multifocal IOL (Acrysof Restor, Alcon) in patients who have had previous corneal refractive laser surgery for hyperopia (LASIK, LASEK or PRK).


Eighty-one eyes of 46 patients were included. Twenty-nine eyes underwent lens extraction because of cataract, 52 eyes had a clear lens extraction. Mean post-operative uncorrected distance visual acuity (UCDA) was 0.15±0.02 LogMAR, median was 0.14 LogMAR. Mean post-operative spherical equivalent was 0.07±0.10D. Sixty-five % reached ±0.50D, 86% reached ±1.0D. One eye had an IOL-change because of a hyperopic refractive surprise. There were no serious adverse events (no cystoid macular edema, no endophthalmitis).


Multifocal IOL implantation in eyes with previous corneal laser surgery for hyperopia gives good results in terms of refractive outcome and visual acuity.
